Lunchtime reading – a good sense of humor for this Aussie.
You’ve won 4 NBA titles, you been paid in the 100’s of millions of dollars in salary and endorsements to play a game, and you still have to rip on the people that you worked with. Everywhere this guy goes, he rips on the people after he leaves.
Get ready Phoenix, when he’s done with you Steve Nash, he’ll tell the world how bad you treated him etc. History is the best indicator for the future.
Agreed with Pat Riley – it’s sad.
I love the Cubs, but they did not deserve to win last night. Spent the game at a bar called Brownstone’s. Good times even though they lost. The energy behind this team is palpable. My old buddy McGovern says that they have not had a night game at Wrigley on a saturday nite for years or maybe forever because it is a neighborhood and there is an agreement not to with the neighbors. So if they can win tonight before coming back to Wrigley for Sat and Sunday – should be a great time and atmosphere.

Go Cubs – 1 of the 1st two and we are in it.
Since made the trek out to Chicago for the Cubs playoff run, I decided that I just have to goto the games. We’ve all tried craigslist before – and yes – it can work but it is a zoo trying to be the 1st and the competition is high.
So I went to Stubhub. Yes – they rape and pillage on the price as well, but at least it is not just a text listing service like Craigslist. They have a map of Wrigley and give you an awesome idea of where the seats are and made it a very easy process. And the fan buyer protection thing is cool too. Some jag off is less likely to rip you off through a 3rd party like Stubhub.

Don Cherry on Women at Hockey Games
He was on NBC promoting the fighting in Hockey recently so I googled a few of his vids.
Jamie wrote up his list and it was nice to see Bob included in it. Well done Bob. 🙂
As for that list, very US centric. Which is fine. There are a lot of sports bloggers that we don’t know about or in non-US sport (soccer) that are rather influential. But it is our world so we can define it how we want, eh?
